George Watson's College

Former Pupils

Edward Reuben Yerbury (1881-1952) took many photographs of large school groups.  This photo shows how they were taken.  The camera swung slowly round in an ark, slowly photographing the group. 

On some occasions, some pupils dashed from one end of the line to the other while the photo was being taken, and so appeared twice on it.

The photograph above is of a Re-union of George Watson College Former Pupils, when they met for the last time at the old school.  This photo appeared in the Evening Dispatch on 16 July 1932.
